Hello world, yet again!

I’m back! Sorta… It’s been more than a year since my last post and I can tell you, a lot has changed since I last wrote something on here. Given everything else that was going on in my life, the blog definitely felt less of a priority. Well for one, I officially completed my Masters in Geography at Ankara University, although I still don’t have a certificate to prove it yet.

It feels as if time has stopped, if only just for a while. No need to worry about your Turkish language course, or your English language lessons or even about the spots you’ve been trying to get rid of for a while. No need to think about anything else other than your dark roasted Sumatran blend in your hands and possibly one of the goodies you bought yourself as accompaniment. Despite being the one in the shop window, for once you’re not the one on display. Continue reading Turning the page.
